Anthony Vanderpool, who led a rather romantic life, was a member of the family of New York Vanderpools, who had come from Netherlands and settled in the Mohawk Valley, west of Albany. He was born at Kinderhook in 1748. During the Revolutionary war he served a year in the regiment commanded by Colonel Wynkoop of the New York troops. Mr. Vanderpool had married Elizabeth Johnson, a woman with Oneida blood. This move was decidedly distasteful to the haughty and somewhat aristocratic Dutch family, and Anthony was accordingly cast off. He became a wanderer and finally drifted into Bradford County about 1790. He located on Durrell creek, thence moved into French settlement and engaged in the employ of that colony.

After this he lived at different places in Monroe and Asylum [twps] and died, 1839. He was buried in the old Ellis Hill cemetery. Mr. Vanderpool is described as a man well-built, about six feet tall with all the characteristics of a Dutchman and some of the Indian, resulting from association. He was known as “King Pool” and was a man of no particular faults. His children were William, Anthony, Richard, Mary, Peter, Samuel, Lovina, Abraham, Henry and Eleanor.

William lived to be a centenarian and all the others to advanced years.

Anthony Vanderpool came to Asylum [twp] in 1790; he died in 1838, aged 99 years. President Martin VanBuren married his niece.

Anthony Vanderpool (originally Vander Poel), a Hollander by birth, came to Bradford county from Kinderhook, Columbia county, N. Y, in about 1790. He was a soldier in the War of the Revolution for three years, and the ancestor of the large family of that name now in the county. His first stopping-place was Aquaga, where he remained a year or two, then came to Durell Creek, and thence moved into the French settlement and engaged in the employ of that colony. We next find him in Monroe, where he built a small log-mill (referred to as the “tub mill”) on the South Branch. “Fowler’s mill” afterwards occupied the same site. After remaining here for four or five years, and being despoiled of the title of his land, he again sought a new field of quietness. For a number of years he lived at Liberty Corners on the Hollon place and formed a considerable settlement there with his sons, and perhaps others. They lived in huts and had cleared a portion of the farm. It is stated that they had a burial upon the place. Again, as early as 1816, we find the family living on “Ellis Hill,” having as many as six or seven cabins on the place now known as the “Williams farm.” Their settlement was known as “Pool Town,” and the hill as “Pool Hill.” From here the family scattered, numerous descendants being found in the county, in settlements of their own kind. For a few years Mr. Vanderpool also resided upon the “Goff place,” and Wm. Northrup and Wm. Tallady were frequent playmates of his younger boys. He died at Hale’s in 1839, it is claimed aged 99 years, and was buried at Ellis Hill.

His wife was Elizabeth Johnson. She died in 1837, and is also buried at Ellis Hill. Their children were----William, Anthony, Richard, Mary, Peter, Samuel, Lovina (“Vina”), Abraham, Henry, and Eleanor. The last named, Mrs. John Johnson, aged nearly 80 years, is the only one of the family living. William lived to be a centenarian, and all the others to a good age.

=

The Vanderpools and Johnsons. ------ Hollanders early settled on the Hudson both above and below Albany, and their names are left to this day among the “Vans.” The Vanderpool family settled in the Mohawk valley west of Albany, and were a prominent and somewhat important family in the early history of that section of the country. Judge Vanderpool was of this family, and stood second only to such men as Story, Livingston and Kent; in fact, his decisions were held in esteem with all the jurists and barristers of the State. Anthony Vanderpool was of this family. There in the valley districts the family were both numerous and influential, and among its members owned and cultivated large real estates, some of which remain in the possession of the lineal families until this day.” Martin Van Buren, the eighth President of the United States, was a nephew of Anthony Vanderpool, his mother being a sister.

=

Sir William Johnson, who bore so prominent a part in the French and Indian war, was given the management of the landed estate of his uncle, Sir Peter Warren, in the Mohawk valley, upon condition that he would undertake its improvement and settlement. Accepting the offer he established himself in the valley at Warrensburg, 24 miles from Schenectady. “In addition to the settling and improving of the country, he embarked in trade with the Indians, whom he always treated with perfect honesty and justice. This course, added to his easy but dignified and affable manner, and the intimacy which he cultivated with them, by accommodating himself to their manners and sometimes even to their dress, soon won for him their entire confidence, so that he acquired an influence over them greater than was ever possessed by any other white man. He became a master of their language, speaking many of their dialects perfectly, and was thoroughly acquainted with their peculiar habits, beliefs and customs. He was adopted by the Mohawks as one of their own tribe, chosen sachem, and named Wariaghejaghe, ‘he who has charge of affairs.’ “He was the founder of Johnstown, lived in the style of an old English baron, and exercised the most unbounded hospitality. About 1740 he married Catharine Wisenburgh, a German girl, who died young, leaving him a widower with three children---a son, John, knighted in 1765, and two daughters, who married, respectively, Col. Claus and Col. Guy Johnson. Sir William never married again. He had for some years many mistresses, both Indian and white; by whom it is said he had 100 children. Mary, or as she is generally called, “Molly” Brant, the sister of Joseph Brant, the great Mohawk sachem, whom he took to his house, and with whom he lived happily till death, is by some termed his wife, but they were never legally married. He had eight children by her whom he provided for by his will, in which he calls them his natural children. Not only were his illegitimate children called “Johnson,” but tradition says, “because of his high standing among the Indians, they named many of their papooses after him.” Hence it is seen that the Johnsons coming from the Mohawk valley are either mongrels or full blooded Indians.

=

The origin of the two families named in the caption has now been fully defined, and we come to the reason of Mr. Vanderpool’s migration to Bradford County. As already stated, it is seen that the Vanderpools were a family of standing and affluence; and that in adjacent territory to them were large fragments of the once powerful Mohawk nation. “The Oneida tribe was a part of the original Mohawk nation, and this tribe had their head centre contiguous to Albany on their east, and Utica in their western association.” Now it is easy to see how Anthony Vanderpool became acquainted with Elizabeth Johnson. It is said that he married her because she won his heart by befriending him in time of Indian hostilities; and also, that a pleasant face, though yellow, captivated him, and both becoming environed in love, matrimony was the natural result. This move was decidedly distasteful to the haughty and somewhat aristocratic Dutch family, and hence Anthony (called “Antony”) having gained the displeasure of the family was cast off. He came to Bradford County while the Indians were yet here. Mr. Vanderpool is described as a man well-built, about six feet high, with all the characteristics of a “Dutchman,” and some of the Indian, resulting from association. He was known as “King Pool” and was a man of no particular faults. Mrs. Vanderpool is remembered as a common-sized woman of dark yellow skin, pleasant countenance, slow of speech and fond of smoking. She was known as “Queen Pool,” and the old people do not hesitate in saying that she belonged to the Oneida tribe. The complexion of the children varied, some being lighter than others. They had the characteristics of both the Hollander and Indian. Their language, impure, was strongly of the Dutch accent; while their dispositions were akin to those of the Indian.

=

It is stated that the father of “King Pool” came directly from Netherlands, and lived for a short time at Kinderhook.

=

Isaac Wheeler came to the county with Anthony Vanderpool, and moved from place to place with him. He was the “Wheeler” living on the South Branch when the Fowlers came in. He was a drummer in the Revolutionary war, and drew a pension afterwards. His wife was Eleanor Johnson. In 1822 he moved to Indiana, where he died.

Nicholas Johnson, a brother of “Eleanor Wheeler,” also came from Kinderhook to the county between 1797-1800. Others of the name followed; also Ambrose Vincent, Henry Cornelius, and a family by the name of Heeman. It is said that Mrs. Heeman and Mrs. Vincent were sisters of Mrs. Vanderpool.

Marriage Notes for ANTHONY VANDERPOOL and ELIZABETH JANSSEN:

“Anthony Vanderpool might have been married twice, with his second wife being an Indian girl. His documented wife was Elizabeth Janssen .... The reason I say this is the pronounced difference among Vanderpools in regard to skin color. Some have a totally fair complexion, while others are very dark. I am not alone in this assumption, as others have agreed with me.” (from Lorenzo Benjamin)

=

George Lasco: “The Vanderpoels insist they are descended from an orphaned Indian girl, who was raised in a Dutch household in Rensselaer County, New York, and married the natural son of the house. Since the family would not permit the marriage they eloped and joined the comfortable environment of the Pool Tribe. see  http://meiszen.net/family/tree/manly/loretta/pool_tribe.htm: George Lasco: ‘Pool Tribe of Towanda PA

Sir William Johnson and Molly Brant had a daughter named Elizabeth Johnson in 1763. She married Dr Robert Kerr at Niagara in 1783; they had five children, and she died in 1794 at age 32. One of their sons, William Johnson Kerr, married his first cousin, Elizabeth Brant, daughter of Molly’s brother Chief Joseph Brant. (See Lois M. Huey and Bonnie Pulis, Molly Brant, A Legacy of Her Own, Old Fort Niagara Association, 1997, ISBN 0-941967-18-2.)

Although Anthony Vanderpool’s wife had a similar name, she was a different person altogether (NOT a daughter of Sir William, as stated by Lasco). Lorenzo Benjamin at WorldConnect database “durellvdp” lists Anthony Vanderpool b 15 Aug 1754 in Albany NY; married 19 May 1776 to Elizabeth Janssen aka Johnson who died 1837.

Notes for LAVINA VANDERPOOL:

aka Elvina, Lovina, Lavinia, Vina = See also note at 1822 marriage to Aaron Clark; see also http://www.rootsweb.com/~srgp/jmtindex.htm

= = =

“Elvina Clark” appears as head of household in 1830 census, Asylum Twp 104, Bradford Co, PA, with no adult male and 5 children whose age and sex are consistent with William Brey family Bible: M 1810-1815; M 1815-1820; F 1820-1825; F 1820-1825; M 1825-1830. The Bible record (probably written by William Brey) lists Anthony Johnson b 1814; William Bray b 1819 Towanda PA; Mary Ann Clark b 1822; Elizabeth Clark b 1823; John Robinson, b 1828

= =

“Lavina Clark” (who would be 52) appears as head of household in 1840 census, Norwich Twp, Chenango Co, NY: The only 2 persons in household are a Female 50-60 and a Male 20-30. The male could be William. (We have a possible marriage of her son Anthony Johnson to Malinda Northrup about 1836. Her Clark daughters are almost 20, and son John Robinson age 12 could be living elsewhere.) Note that William married Samantha Andrus 2 years later, who was from NY. Also there is a likely scenario with John Robinson married to Harriet before 1850.

= In 1840 Lavina’s father Anthony Vanderpool (95 according to census, more likely 85) was living at Asylum Twp (“Pool Town?”) with Henry Pool Jr (probably Lavina’s brother, b 1801) - nobody in that household matches Lavina’s age and sex. She might have been living elsewhere nearby, but she does not show up as a head of household in PA 1840 census.

= =

In 1850 census for Durell, Bradford Co, PA, Lavina Clark 63 is living with Wm Vanderpool 76 (presumably her brother William b 23 Jul 1780, who would actually be 70) and his wife Polly 66. Next door lives John Vanderpool 30 with wife Margaret 28 and children Jane 5, Alonzo 3, and infant John.

Marriage Notes for LAVINA VANDERPOOL and AARON CLARK:

DLV calls attention to <http://www.rootsweb.com/~srgp/heverly/marr1820.htm> at “Tri-Counties Genealogy & History by Joyce M. Tice” web site, which lists 1822 marriage record: “Jun 9, in Monroe, by Justice Charles Brown, Aaron Clark, a pilot on the Susquehanna river, and Mrs. Lavina Johnson of Asylum.”

=

Monroe and Asylum are townships in Bradford Co PA; there is now a village called Monroeton in Monroe twp. = DLV calls attention to bride’s listing as “Mrs”  Johnson in her 1822 marriage record, which may indicate that she actually married the father of Anthony Johnson (b 1814) and that she never married the father of William Bray (born 1819).

Marriage Notes for LAVINA VANDERPOOL and ?? ROBINSON:

See also note at Lovinia’s marriage to Aaron Clark. DLV notes that Lovinia appears in 1850 census for Durell 196/200, household of Wm Vanderpool (her brother) as Lovinia Clark age 63 b PA - this could indicate that she was never married to John Robinson’s father.

Also in household: Semantha 38 (occupation: Straw binder), Celestia 15, Lorin W 11, Ossian 9, Perry 6, Saloma 4, Jerome M 1.

“Doctor” Brey = According to Harry Brey (LPM visit June 1958), he changed his name from Bray to Brey because there was another Dr. William Bray in the same town. = WB’s father was a red-haired Irishman; his first name is not known. According to family tradition, WB’s mother was part Indian.

=

Doris Klock, 1985: I got a copy of a tintype of William which I love. We saw his medical book as I wondered about the “Dr.” [i.e., the title]. All kinds of poultice, herbs, bleeding, etc. etc., pus he pulled the Indians’ teeth. But his tombstone says “Dr.” I was very interested. Hope to learn more about this interesting ancestor.

= Son Perry seems to have been more successful as a jeweler and farmer. Dr. William’s farm is more for small crops like maple sugar, strawberries and sheep cows, chickens, etc. for their own use. Kind of a pretty valley [Brey Valley, WI] though.
